A view From The Bridge By Laura Kavanagh A new production of a famous Arthur Miller play tells a tale of love and respect with an Italian twist, is set to open in town. Susan Wilson is directing A View From The Bridge playing at Circa Theatre from July 19 to August 23. It will be the fifth Arthur Miler play Susan has directed at Circa, with a cast including Gavin Rutherford, Jude Gibson, Christopher Brougham, Acushla-Tara Sutton, Paul Waggott, Alex Grieg and third year drama students from Whitireia’s Stage and Screen. The story follows Italian American dockworker, Eddie Carbone, living in Brooklyn New York with his wife Bea-

trice and his orphaned niece Catherine. Eddie works, looks after his family and hopes for a better future for Catherine. When Beatrice’s Sicilian cousins enter the country illegally, Eddie welcomes them into his home, but when one of them falls for his beautiful niece, Eddie’s jealous mistrust drives him to commit the ultimate betrayal. Originally written as a one act play, A View From The Bridge, was rewritten in two acts, premiering in London’s West End in 1956. Alex Greig and Paul Waggott play the two cousins, and say it has been a challenging experience getting into character. “Getting the accent and ges-

tures, there is huge cultural difference,” Paul says. Paul says the play is about honour and respect. “If you wound my pride, if I lose face, that is the greatest loss I can suffer,” Paul says. Acushla plays Catherine and says Arthur’s script is semi poetic. “All the lines have a certain rhythm,” Acushla says. “The sprinkles of poetry throughout the lines are beautifully crafted,” Acushla says. She says it is a coming of age story for Catherine, who is 17 and is just finding herself. “You start to see her age, which is both beautiful and sad at the same time,” Acushla says. “The death of naivety,” she says.
